I'm just freaking curious if Cibulkova learned anything from his loss against Azarenka. Hope she'll capitalise on her form and win this tourney. If not her, then Goerges. It'd be a shame if none of them take the trophey.

After Flavia Pennetta (http://www.lavozlibre.com/noticias/ampliar/557851/-flavia-pennetta-recibe-una-wild-card-y-participara-en-el-barcelona-ladies-open) recieved a [WC] – she is eligible for Top 20 WC – I updated the opener.

As a matter of curiosity: The tournament awarded a [WC] to Garbińe Muguruza (http://www.fctennis.cat/cit/?p=1823), who sidelined Flavia at Sony Ericson Open, earlier.
